Samsung has launched its newest and smartest television, the Samsung QLED Television 2018, into the Nigerian market.
Olumide Olakotan, Key Account Manager, Samsung Electronics West Africa, said in Lagos that the new device would not only serve as an entertainment tool, but also add to the glamour that Samsung products brings to the home.
He added that the new features in Samsung 2018 QLED television included a new ‘Invisible Connection’ or a single super-thin cable that will be hard to spot.
“The main cable and nest of HDMI cables will go into the standard, separate connection box, and then a single, barely noticeable cable connects them to the television, leaving the area clutter free and tidy.
This is the first time such a thin cable has handled both data and power duties, said the Samsung official.
“At Samsung, we are focused on leaving a legacy of perfection for our consumers and that is why all our products are carefully crafted to meet the very specific needs of our growing dynamic and stylish customers,” he said.
The manager said that the QLED could double as a piece of art in the living room or blend into the wall.
“The QLED when wall-mounted and on Ambient Mode can mimic the pattern on the wall behind the television, to create an astonishing visual effect in which the TV blends seamlessly into the wall.
“QLED television can hide in plain sight. If you are not watching, you will not see a TV,” Olakotan added.
Olakotan said users could now experience the truly connected life through the SmartThings app which connects the television to a broad range of smart devices and appliances, from the fridge to your smartphone, among others.
He stressed that with the OneRemote feature, users could do without juggling remotes to control the different connected devices as it automatically detects, identifies and controls connected devices and content.
“Users never have to take their eyes off the television to operate any internet connected device in their homes – hence the slogan, See Nothing Else.
“The QLED 2018 is voice operated and can be easily synched with any device in the home powered by internet connectivity.
“With this feature, users can dim the light, turn off the washing machine and regulate the air conditioner all from the comfort of their couch.
“The television comes in 55, 65 and 75 inches with a curved screen option and is now available at Samsung outlets throughout Nigeria,’’ he said.
